When You Work At a Museum...

When someone at a dinner party insists that schools are wasting time & money teaching art.

You have to do this: 

Before you do this: 

When anyone outside of exhibits is asked to fix a display case.

When you heavily promote a fun, interactive exhibition to schools and families and at the last minute an artist decides to change their original design into a 5 ft tall penis.

When a group of visitor lets themselves into a closed gallery that you’re in the middle of reinstalling.

Well, obviously all those TEMPORARILY CLOSED - DO NOT ENTER signs didn’t apply to them. Those are for OTHER people. 

When you impress your date with a private after-hours tour and show them all the cool stuff up close.

If you do this for someone and they aren’t appropriately impressed, it wasn’t meant to be. 

When a tween in a twilight shirt climbs up three display cases to hug your taxidermy wolf.

And you’re pretty sure that wolf was preserved with arsenic.

When you release what you believe to be the most beautiful publication that you’ve ever done, but the only messages you get from your colleagues are to point out the typo on page 23.

This is technically a professional development activity.

+1 skill level for:

  • laying out a big show in a tiny gallery 
  • packing the box truck
  • fitting that new acquisition you didn’t know was coming into the collections storage area.

Facebook has declared this tumblr “unsafe” and pulled all links to it. I have no idea why, and no idea if or when they’ll fix it. Super annoying and frustrating, and makes me want to abandon the site. But I miss the conversations and feedback I get there. Is MySpace a thing again? Can we move there?

It’s being labled as unsafe by Facebook right now because of the Heartbleed bug. Tumblr has confirmed that it’s users information has been compromised. Facebook is playing it safe by listing Tumblr as a threat.

No, it’s not because of Heartbleed. I can post any other any other tumblr link to Facebook without an error message. They have specifically blocked sharing WYAAM links.
